its a truck driving job, i just finished the first day............. i guess it went ok, there was no load today, most of the day i was learning the product. no big deal. I have mixed feelings about my co workers though. I can see there is no shortage for A...... HOLES in the work industry. But ill let that pass, i dont need to worry my wife right now. Im often amazed about the type of people that are able to abtain power. Anyway, tomarow ill be loaded and gone.ITS a job. WHAT can i say? later.

Think of it this way, at least you are working. I know a few people who can't find jobs right now. Give it some time and hopefully it will get better.

Well, that3 days is over. the job is easy ,its ok. The co workers not so easy. GETTO THUGS... but enough said. Somtimes you can be over qualified for a job. It dont pay much so im not loosing much. Anyway, i got an acceptance letter from KBR i had applied for some time ago. We did the paper work today and sent it off. it will take about 2 weeks to proccess and ill leave for huston tx. for oreantation. thats 3 weeks. then to kuwait then iraq. Well, i didnt make any money in the first war, maybe i can make some this time. Ill stay here until my job comes up. THANKS anyway guys for the support. i hope all your holidays were great.
